Tasty: Our stone-ground, single-sourced seeds produce a smoother, creamier, irresistible tahini.
Authentic: SoCo has been made the same way for over 5 generations from 100% Humera sesame seeds, unlike any other tahini.
Healthy: Our slow & low temp roasting and whole sesame tahini better maintain the health benefits over the standard production methods.
Mission Driven: We’re about more than just food - we build bridges between Israelis and Palestinians through economic collaboration, by example and by donation.
SoCo, which stands for Seeds of Collaboration, was founded by two self-described tahini addicts from Israel, to bring the magic of tahini to America while reaching across borders to build bridges between communities. At their core, SoCo a women owned company believes that economic collaboration is a sustainable way to build bridges between communities in conflict. SoCo also gives back by donating 1% of proceeds to MEET (Middle East Entrepreneurs of Tomorrow), a non-profit in full partnership with MIT that connects young Israeli and Palestinian students using the common language of technology and entrepreneurship.
Every SoCo jar sold helps fund a student startup at MEET, seeding more partnerships like ours.
